The Science Behind Gratitude

Studies have shown that happier people may not necessarily have significantly more than their less content counterparts, they just show more gratitude for what they do have[1][2]

Remember:

Where you are right now may not be your desired final destination..& that is okay.

‘Be grateful for what you have, while in pursuit of what you want’  Jim Rohn

In other words:

‘Give thanks for what surrounds you whilst pursuing what’s in front of you’

With love,

The Asian Destination xo
